I'll have a think about whether there's a compromise.

No, if you're part-way through the results and you hit C-b you just
move back through the results. Only if you cannot go back do you begin
to move the cursor; dmenu is a menu first, an input field second. (And
C-n / C-p don't move the cursor at all.)
